Pursuant to the City of Philadelphia’s Campaign Finance Law, if a candidate makes total contributions of $250,000 or more of their personal resources to their campaign, then the contribution limits for all candidates for that office shall be doubled.

As of May 3, 2023, Nina Ahmad, a candidate for City Council At-Large, contributed more than $250,000 of her personal resources to her campaign.  Therefore, the limits on contributions made on May 3, 2023 or later to all candidates for Philadelphia City Council At-Large are doubled to:

  • $6,200 for individuals; and
  • $25,200 for political committees and unincorporated business organizations

The limits for candidates for Philadelphia City Council At-Large will remain doubled even if:

  • Nina Ahmad ceases to be a candidate; or
  • After the limits have doubled, Nina Ahmad’s political committee returns, repays, or refunds a portion of the money contributed from her personal resources.

Please note that the limits are not doubled for City Council District races.  Nor are they doubled for contributions to litigation fund committees or transition and inauguration committees.
